Many years ago (in the 80s, when I was just a teenager) I went hiking in the Weminuche Wilderness... we took the famous train ride, got off at the trail head and hiked into Chicago Basin and summited Sunlight (so I've been told. I actually am almost convinced that the guy who confirmed that to me is wrong and we actually summited Windom.)

Even though it's been a good 30 years, I want to avoid that specific route, but I'd love to scout out some other potential loop or out and back or lollipop routes in the San Juans. I wouldn't necessarily mind getting to Chicago Basin via another route (as I recall, the train is pretty pricey—over Columbine Pass, maybe? I think I recall that part of our group took a day trip to the Vallecito basin to go fishing) but I'd also love to find some way to see the Grenadiers. Any recommendations?
